Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

Just checked and I do have a '72 Highlander. Was originally the 618 orange, now has the black and white houndstooth. Big block, TH400, Black dash pad, white door panels, black carpet, tilt steering.

I had it repainted the correct red/orange and white several years ago and never drove it. A couple of years later I had the whole top end of the motor rebuilt, and again never drove it. It has been sitting under a shed for several years and is sitting on 4 flat tires and the carb needs work. Needs a lot of elbow grease, but has no rot at all. I would be willing to part with it if someone made the right offer.

Great to hear! That is the intent of these threads. To uncover unknown or forgotten Highlanders and showcase the known trucks with pictures and details for everyone. Please consider posting up the SPID.

Soon... I'm really bad about "soon" myself. Any progress on the pictures there of the truck and SPID? Is it a SWB 167559 by chance (another found Highlander from last year)? :-)

Sounds like an interesting find, a solid black. "Red plaid" wonder how close to stock it looks. From the SPID of course it had gray plaid. Looking forward to pictures but I'm guessing those will be a while.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

Tim, I bought this Burb a few years ago and resold it because it was to rusty to redo. Reading this thread I realized the rear seats were plaid like a Highlander but someone had installed 80's buckets up front. I'm attaching a pic of the spid and a side shot of the Burb where you can see the plaid on the top of the rear seat and the 3rd seat which was loose had the same blue plaid. Was this Burb a Highlander?

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

Yes, It is a factory Highlander Plaid Suburban, note the x642xx CUSTOM TRIM COMBINATION.

There is a dedicated plaid Suburban thread with more specific information and pictures.

http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=635035

Could a moderator please move these two posts to the referenced Suburban thread?

I've got plaid. Though, disgracefully I keep the seat bottom covered, due to deterioration on the driver side...

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

Under the message box click the "go advanced" tab, additional options then appear near the bottom of the screen - click the "manage attachments" tab - once the box pops up click the "browse" tab to select the file you want to upload (up to 5) then click the "upload" tab. Click "close window" in that box once pics uploaded...

yea I noticed the seat difference after I posted that apparently it's been swapped/recovered. the truck is in stellar condition 0 rust but all the trim is off of it and it's in epoxy at the moment and he's got it stashed in the woods. he saving it for when he needs a quick buck basically it needs paint thrown on it and put the trim back on and it's ready for sale.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

This is it too. Its not a Cheyenne, someone put those badges here. The original seat is long gone. I am in the slow process of putting it back to original condition. Thanks to SS Tim for setting me straight on some minor issues. !!!

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

Thanks chevyland. I plan to, but it is going to take time. I just took the gas tank out looking for the build sheet. I didn't find it, so now it is time for some much needed cleaning.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

I have one. But I guess its what you would call a "tribute." As far as I can tell, I haven't seen any factory 4x4 Highlanders. Its originally a swb 4x4 Custom/10 that I've restored to be a Custom Deluxe with the Highlander trim. If someone can come up with pictures or documentation of a factory 4x4 highlander, I'd be tickled pink!

yfs200p, that is quite unique. They keep coming out of the woods. I am assuming that is a short bed. wow! and a 4x4! I like it.

Could you post a picture of the SPID? I would love to see that.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

Mitchell72 has one of the lost Highlanders and I am glad he took the time to ask some questions back in 12/2012. Even happier he has decided to now bring it back to its former self. The truck has a fairly unique option grouping in that it does not have chromed hub caps/wheelcovers or bumpers but does have the Deluxe Two-Tone in Hugger Orange. Thanks for posting the pics Mitchell.

Nick, That is a nice looking truck and well done on the interior. Can't wait to see it finished up. 4X4 Highlanders are not unknown but do seem to be few and far between. Of them the K20s, so far, are the fewest and here is Special-Ks truck (now being restored by its new owner). Please note the original carpet had been replaced with a mat due to damage.
But the fact is any Fleetside with Custom Deluxe trim C10-30 and K10-20 could be ordered with the Highlander trim upgrade. Most of the 4X4s are Blazers and you might want check out that thread too.

Curiously 4X4 Suburbans were not offered with the Highlander option.

Thanks for the compliments.
That is a nice one, but if I remember correctly Special-K said that truck was originally a c/20 that was converted to 4wd. I don't think I've seen a 4x4 highlander pickup on here through all the searches I've conducted.

When I bought the truck it had had a glove box swap at some point, so I don't have any of the original options. But the vin decodes to a 72 SWB 4x4 350 built in Baltimore, MD. I wasn't around in 72, as a matter of fact my parents hadn't even met yet in 1972 (LOL). But i built this truck to be exactly what i would have ordered from the dealership if i was buying a brand new chevy in 1972. It turned out nice and I'm pretty proud of it.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

You may be right about Tim's truck, having never seen the SPID, but as I remember it has always been represented to me as an original K20 Highlander.
The other 4x4 20 Highlander I know of is known to have been converted and apparently with 6 lug parts!

The data books state Highlander Plaid as avaliable on C10-30 Fleetsides & Longhorns, no exclusions on Blazers and specifically C10-20 Suburbans only.

The Highlander Promo Package flyers state only 10 20 and 30 without definition as to "C" or "K" plus of course that it was also available in Blazers and Suburbans as well.

Having seen pictures of "K" Highlanders in addition to Tim's I felt they were legitimate production vehicles possibly as Promos or special order. It is curious that they would even restrict the trim option at all considering there are no special parts other than the seat cover.

At this point I cannot find a "K" pickup plaid SPID in my collection but have lots to look through.
